FOREWORD 

The nine member institutions of the Chicago Cluster of Theological Schools con- 
tinue to forge and strengthen bonds of interdependence as they prepare persons 
for pastoral and prophetic ministries to the tragic and heroic dimensions of con- 
temporary existence in the light of Judeo-Christian faith. Such interdependence 
manifests itself in a variety of exciting and rewarding possiblities for theological 
education in a setting in which the resources of one of the world's great 
metropolitan areas are creatively brought to bear upon urban, suburban, and rural 
ministries. 

Cooperative ventures designed to enhance the personal and professional 
growth of students are fostered through a variety of structures and processes. 

All Cluster schools extend reciprocal tuition-free cross-registration privileges for 
course work and, in certain instances, supervised ministry placements — a privilege 
which almost one thousand students exercised last year. Cross-registration within 
Cluster schools is facilitated by common academic calendars, class schedules, and 
"Cluster Day" courses whose weekly sessions rotate from campus to campus in or- 
der to be more easily accessible to students in all Cluster schools. Most Cluster 
students also have access to such cross-registration privileges at five additional 
seminaries which comprise the Chicago Theological Institute. 

Cluster schools are taking their most significant common strides to date in ad- 
vanced professional education by launching a cooperatively-resourced Doctor of 
Ministry progrom in Pastoral Care. Requiring a year's residency, the degree is 
offered through "in-ministry" and "in-sequence" tracks for both full- and part- 
time students. Its common components include (1) a year-long core seminar team- 
taught by faculty from participating schools, and (2) year-long practica in insti- 
tutions affording opportunity for specialization related to each of the following: 
marriage and family, individuals (psychoanalytic and human potential ap- 
proaches), older persons, alcoholics, minorities, congregations, community medi- 
cine, community mental health, and Clinical Pastoral Education. (A similar design 
is also under consideration for a cooperatively-resourced D. Min. program in 
Campus Ministry.) 

The Cluster's ongoing determination to increase curricular and faculty resources 
for Blacks and women is being vitally complemented by the development of new 
resources for Latinos and others who will serve in Spanish-speaking settings. This 
broadened concern will enrich, and be enriched by, the Cluster's outstanding 
resources in cross-cultural and global dimensions of mission. 

The Cluster's unique, intensive, interdisciplinary and interconfessional Areas 
of Concentration will be expanded this year to include a sixth focus of professional 
expertise. Interpretation and Communication: Preaching. Moreover, building 
on accomplishments realized through its initial field education supervision con- 
ference last year, the Cluster is currently sponsoring three training events to en- 
hance supervised ministry involvements of students, faculty, clergy and laity. 

While the deepening commitment of Cluster schools to common ventures of 
growing significance is reflected in these and other program advances, such com- 
mitment is also importantly symbolized by the recent appointment of Frederick K. 
Wentz as Executive Director of the Cluster. Through Dr. Wentz's creative leader- 
ship the Cluster confidently anticipates that its member schools will continue to be 
challenged and enabled to join strength with strength in new and increasingly ef- 
fective ways of serving the church and the world.

CLUSTER INSTITUTIONS 

CHICAGO CLUSTER OF THEOLOGICAL SCHOOLS 

The Chicago Cluster of Theological Schools is an ecumenical association of six 
Protestant and three Roman Catholic seminaries. While preserving their legal 
autonomy and denominational integrity, the schools espouse common commit- 
ments to provide graduate professional education of the highest order in equip- 
ping men and women for leadership as ministers, priests, and laypersons in serving 
the world and the church. 

Such common commitments involve educational, theological, and financial 
purposes. Educationally, the Cluster reflects the purpose of its member schools 
to maximize the scope and depth of excellence in theological preparation made 
possible by the coordinated sharing and development of resources such as facul- 
ties, libraries, auxiliary services, physical plants, and funds for new and ongoing 
programs. Theologically, the Cluster reflects the purpose of its member schools 
to prepare leaders whose identities are both rooted in their respective confessional 
and ecclesial traditions and informed by appreciation of the richness of ecumeni- 
cal and interfaith perceptions of divine concern for the world. Financially, the 
Cluster reflects the purpose of its member schools to obtain the best educational 
return on the investment of funds entrusted to their stewardship by realizing 
fiscal economies through consolidated institutional purchasing and through co- 
ordinated elimination of unnecessary duplication of resources. 

The Cluster was organized in 1970 and incorporated as a not-for-profit corpora- 
tion in 1971. Of its eight founding institutions, five Protestant schools represented 
a corresponding number of denominations and three Roman Catholic schools 
represented or officially served eight religious communities and one diocese. Since 
the Cluster's formation, these founding schools have officially been joined by nine 
additional Roman Catholic religious communities and by another Protestant semi- 
nary. Jewish presence and studies have been provided during these years through 
cooperating institutions. 

Six of the nine member schools are grouped closely together on the south side of 
Chicago adjacent to the University of Chicago. Two are located on contiguous 
campuses in west suburban Oak Brook, and one is situated in the southwest sub- 
urb of Lemont. 

The Cluster's diverse and extensive networks of resources for theological educa- 
tion are unparalleled in the Midwest and are among the most outstanding in North 
America. The nine Cluster schools offer a variety of academic and professional 
degrees at the master's and doctoral levels, and programs of continuing education 
for clergy and laity. The almost 1,400 Cluster students have access to resources 
such as those represented by 175 faculty (of whom 130 are full-time), including 
7 Blacks and 18 women; more than 450 courses annually; library collections of 
some 775,000 volumes and 1,600 currently-received periodicals; contemporary 
electronic media equipment (including portable and studio video capabilities) 
and modern language lab facilities; and three centers for specialized research and 
ministry dealing, respectively, with religion and science, religious education, and 
the church and urban-industrial society. 

Beyond the resources of the Cluster are those of six other Chicago-area theo- 
logical schools upon which Cluster students may draw, together with the vast 
resources of numerous institutions of higher learning and innumerable organiza- 
tions and agencies of a religious, humanitarian, cultural or scientific character in 
and about the metropolitan environs.

CLUSTER AREAS OF CONCENTRATION 

Introduction 

Among a variety of cooperative enterprises, the Cluster offers six unique pro- 
grams of education for ministry which draw in an integrated manner upon the re- 
sources of its member schools and the metropolitan Chicago area. These six Clus- 
ter Areas of Concentration are Personal Transformation, Social Transformation, 
Celebration, Cross-cultural Communication, and Interpretation and Communica- 
tion: Teaching and Interpretation and Communication: Preaching. Brief identifi- 
cation of the major aspects of the planning process by which these programs have 
been developed will highlight their distinctive features. 

I. The Mandate for Planning 

The six Areas of Concentration represent the present stage of development 
in a process of several years of long range academic planning. Such planning 
includes the combined efforts of faculty, students, and staff who accepted the 
challenge to develop "a plan which will make the Cluster more than a 'co- 
ordinating instrumentality' " and "a blueprint for doing better together what 
we cannot achieve alone and for creating new and better styles of theological 
education ... or of improving the styles we already follow." 

II. The Basis of Planning 

All such planning has incorporated the principle of differential participation 
at the level of both the individual school and the individual student. At the 
institutional level each seminary retains full control over its own academic 
program, including: (1) the determination of the nature, scope, and manner 
of fulfilling the requirements which its own students must complete in their 
home school; and (2) the determination of whether and in what manner it 
wishes to participate as an institution, or wishes its students to participate, in 
the Cluster Areas of Concentration. (Differential participation at the level of 
the individual student will be noted below.) 

III. The Paramenters of Planning 

With such a common basis for planning as background, other crucial issues 
emerged. The decisions made regarding these fundamental issues constitute 
the planning parameters within which the Areas of Concentration have been 
shaped. 

A. The Curricular Model 

Since each school in the Cluster continues to offer its own introductory 
and advanced requirements related to such matters as denominational 
and confessional identity, spiritual formation, and ordination, the Clus- 
ter Areas of Concentration are not designed as a core curriculum in 
which all beginning students in each of the schools are expected to parti- 
cipate. Rather, the Areas of Concentration are designed as intermediate 
and advanced elective offerings which are open to students who have 
completed at least one year of theological education and who have satis- 
fied such other prerequisites as may be appropriate in a particular Area. 

B. The Organizing Principle 

The Areas of Concentration are designed to transcend the personal and 
professional fragmentation which frequently accompanies educational 
experiences which are circumscribed by a particular discipline or field or 

12 



by a particular ministerial role or setting. Therefore, the concentrations 
have been organized in terms of broad areas of functional competence 
which are relevant to a variety of ministerial roles and settings and 
which are dependent upon the integration of performance and insights 
from a variety of disciplines. 

C. The Defining Educational Characteristic 

The Areas of Concentration are designed to foster maximum feasible in- 
corporation of the following interfaces : 

1. instructional interface ~ integration of insights from a variety of dis- 
ciplines and fields, both classical and practical, through the assistance 
of faculty teams whose members represent such expertise; 

2. contextual interface ~ integration of theory and practice through the 
utilization of action-reflection styles of learning wherein students en- 
gage in and reflect upon ministries of various kinds with the assistance 
of peer consultation and professional supervision; 

3. formational interface ~ integration of the student's personal identity 
and professional identity, wherein understandings, attitudes, values 
and skills appropriate to each are experienced and perceived as mu- 
tually interdependent ; 

4. professional interface ~ clarification of the student's professional iden- 
tity as minister (e.g., role, status, authority) in relation to members 
of other professions and occupations which represent corresponding 
areas of functional competence; 

5. ecumenical interface ~ inclusion of students and faculty representing 
diverse theological and ecclesiological traditions; and 

6. institutional interface ~ inclusion of students and faculty representing 
two or more institutions in the Cluster, and the utilization of institu- 
tional resources outside the Cluster. 

D. The Defining Structural Characteristics 

1. Differential Student Participation 

The Areas of Concentration are designed to be sufficiently flexible to 
enable students with varying degrees of interest and curricular free- 
dom to participate in one or more such programs in the pursuit of 
several types of educational and ministerial objectives : 

a. to develop a generalized focus of competence which may (1) serve 
to inform and enrich other functional competencies required of 
"generalists" in a variety of ministries or (2) serve as a general 
foundation upon which the specialized competence required for 
ministries in research and scholarship may subsequently be built; 

b. to develop a more specialized focus of competence which may (1) 
provide an organizing center for other areas of competence required 
of generalists, (2) provide necessary preparation for those whose 
primary, if not exclusive, form of ministry will correspond to one 
of the areas of concentration, or (3) provide a more specialized 
foundation upon which the additional competencies required of re- 
searchers and scholars may be subsequently built; and 

c. to develop a more individualized focus of competence which may 

13 



not correspond wholly to either of the foregoing patterns but which 
best serves the particular student. 

2. Functional Standardization 

The Areas of Concentration are designed to be sufficiently standard- 
ized to provide a functional degree of educational coherence and ad- 
ministrative compatibility. The several Units which will be offered 
during the current year are described in the following pages.

I. Nature of the Unit 

Intensive Unit I is an in-depth experience in a learning-transforming com- 
munity for students who wish to acquire intermediate levels of competence in 
helping individuals and face-to-face groups more fully to actualize their po- 
tential through multi-faceted growth models. It is envisioned that all stu- 
dents, regardless of their previous experience, can grow, try out new ways 
of behavior for enabling growth, teach others, explore new theories and be 
members of the community. 

The Unit consists of one intensive quarter of involvement for which stu- 
dents will receive 6 QH or 9 QH (or 2 or 3 units) credit. With the approval 
of the respective institutions in which they are matriculated, students who 
are involved in the Unit may also enroll in one or two additional courses. 

II. Aims of the Unit 

The general aims of Intensive Unit I include the following: 

A. to assist students to develop a pastoral theological theory and research 
methodology relative to personal transformation which is grounded in 
the classical theological disciplines (Bible, history, ethics, and theology) 
and which is informed by dialogue with the history of the cure of souls, 
contemporary theory and practice in pastoral counseling and clinical 
pastoral education, and relevant secular disciplines; 

B. to assist students to acquire direct personal experience of selected modes 
of personal transformation; and 

C. to assist students to acquire appropriate levels of competence in the uses 
of various modes of personal transformation. 

III. Structure of the Unit 

There are three principal components in Intensive Unit I: a learning- trans- 
forming community, ministry placements, and try-out events. 

14 



A Learning-Transforming Community 

The faculty and students will be members in a learning- transforming 
community. The process of building such a community will begin with a 
five-day founding experience during January 3-7, 1977. The experience 
will be held in an appropriate retreat setting offering opportunities for 
recreation as well as interaction. 

During this time group covenants for the quarter will be developed and 
theoretical and practical inputs will be organized. Individual student cov- 
enants, which will also be developed at this time, will include the identi- 
fication of the specific personal and professional skills and theoretical 
understandings on which one wants to work during the quarter. With 
permission of the faculty member(s) involved, students may also design 
their individual covenants to include required work which they would 
normally be expected to complete through another course; upon fulfill- 
ment of their covenants to the satisfaction of the faculty member(s) 
students would have fulfilled all or part of the course requirement. 

During the subsequent weeks the total group will meet from 9:00 A.M. 
to 9:00 P.M. on Wednesdays and from 9:00-12:00 noon on Thurs- 
days, possibly away from the Cluster. (Within these scheduled class 
sessions students enrolled for 6 QH may negotiate appropriately reduced 
involvement.) Sub-groups /learning teams will also work together at 
other times on common interests, projects, theories, skill training, and 
personal growth. 

The learning-transforming community will be engaged in four continu- 
ing activities: 

1. Acquiring and developing theory, content, and skills related to per- 
sonal transformation. 

The theoretical inputs and content on growth and change will be 
wide-ranging and will be dependent upon the convenants established 
by the individual members and/or group. Illustrative possibilities in- 
clude: prayer, spiritual direction, meditation. Yoga, and demon- 
ology; theological understandings of grace, reconciliation. Christian 
community, confession, justification, redemption, and ethics; the 
meaning of biblical themes, experiences, and words in the context of 
personal transformation and contemporary life; the relationship be- 
tween piety and activism ~ personal and social transformation; 
theories of personality and human development; the human potential 
movement, including Gestalt Therapy, Transactional Analysis, en- 
counter, psychosynthesis, and bio-energetics; and therapeutic models 
such as psychoanalysis and ego-psychology. 

2. Experiencing of one's own growth and of enabling others to grow, 
both within the community and in try-out with others outside. 

3. Reflecting upon the experience and theory. 

4. Evaluating the ongoing process and the life of the community. 

Evaluative decisions will be agreed upon communally within the follow- 
ing general guidelines; a paper or project indicating integration of theory 
and skills, as well as self-evaluation, peer evaluation, and supervisory 
evaluation, will serve as bases for evaluation at the end of the Unit. 

15 



B. Ministry Placements 

It is expected that all students will be involved in some form of ministry 
which provides leadership experience in personal transformation and that 
such involvement will be utilized in the Unit. Students without access to 
such involvements will be assisted to find appropriate placement during 
the quarter in which the Unit is offered. Students who desire to do so will 
also be assisted to find appropriate placement in the quarter preceding 
the Unit. 

C. Try-out Events 

In addition to the experiences of leadership which are expected of them 
within the Unit and within their respective placements, students will be 
provided opportunity to become team leaders with faculty members in 
designing, executing, and evaluating short-term personal transformation 
events for other persons and groups. Possibilities for try-outs may in- 
clude such organizations, groups and occasions as the following: Cluster, 
churches, lay people, house church weekends, spiritual weekends, and 
experiential theology weekends. 

IV. Admission to the Unit 

Open to students (1) who have completed one or more years of theological 
education; (2) who have had some of the following experience and training 
(one or more quarters of Clinical Pastoral Education; laboratory experi- 
ences in small groups, personal growth, etc.; basic courses in personal coun- 
seling and group work); and (3) who have obtained the approval both of 
the school in which they are matriculated and of the Personal Transforma- 
tion teaching team. Approval of the teaching team should be requested 
through an application form which may be obtained from the office of the 
registrar at each school. The application should be submitted to a member 
of the teaching team by October 29, 1976, after which students will be noti- 
fied of their approval for admission. 

All students who have obtained appropriate approval for admission should 
register for the Unit during the registration period which will be held in each 
school during the week of November 8-12, 1976. 

After having registered, students will become part of the planning process 
for the Unit. 



CCTS 1-420 SOCIAL TRANSFORMATION: INTENSIVE UNIT I 

(Not offered 1976-77) 

I. Nature of the Unit 

Intensive Unit I is designed for upper level students who wish to acquire 
further competence in assisting organizations and institutions to become in- 
creasingly effective in ministering to persons in the light of Judeo-Christian 
values. It is intended both for those who are equipping themselves for min- 
istries with the church as the object and agent of social change and for those 
who are preparing for service in agencies of social change other than the 
church. 

The Unit consists of a two-quarter sequence of involvement for which stu- 
dents will receive 12 QH (or 4 units) credit. Credit will be granted only upon 

16 



successful completion of the full sequence. With the approval of the institu- 
tions in which they are matriculated, students who are involved in the Unit 
may also enroll in one or two additional courses each quarter. 

II. Aims of the Unit 

The general aims of Intensive Unit I include the following: 

A. to assist students to develop an understanding of the interrelationships 
between Christian faith and the ministry of social transformation, espe- 
cially as these are clarified through the insights of biblical, historical, 
ethical, and theological disciplines; 

B. to assist students to develop an understanding of the interrelationships 
between social scientific disciplines and the strategy and tactics of social 
action; 

C. to assist students to understand the ways in which one's own intra- 
psychic and interpersonal relationships affect a ministry of social change, 
especially as these are illumined within a context of mutual support and 
criticism; and - 

D. to assist students to become insightful and responsible participants in 
ministries of social change within church and community. 

III. Structure of the Unit 

There are three principal components in Intensive Unit I: theoretical pre- 
sentations, supervised ministry placements, and an integrative seminar. 

A. Theoretical Presentations 

The theoretical presentations will deal with four general areas and their 
interrelationships; tactics and strategy for social change; social theory 
and voluntary associations; the Bible, theology, and social change; and 
historical and ethical analysis of the role of the church in relation to 
social issues in America. 

B. Supervised Ministry Placements 

Each student will be involved in a ministry of social transformation 
either in a church or in a secular institution, agency or movement which 
aims at social change. Placements are intended to enable students to 
move from observation, through participation, to the assumption of 
significant responsibility. Supervision and evaluation of student activi- 
ties in the field will be established as part of a contract agreement with 
the staff early in the Fall Quarter. 

In addition to churches placement possibilities include the following: 
educational institutions (public, private, and alternative schools and 
colleges and universities); private and governmental agencies concerned 
with mental health, medical care, racial justice, women's rights, welfare, 
and housing; penal institutions and agencies related to the criminal 
justice system; community organizations, financial and investment in- 
stitutions; the Alliance to End Repression, etc. 

C. The Integrative Seminar 

Efforts will be made to relate the learnings acquired in the respective 
theoretical presentations and in the supervised ministry placements to 
one another in the integrative seminar. These efforts, in which the full 
teaching team and all students will participate, will include the develop- 
ment of wholistic understandings of the ideological, institutional, inter- 

17 



personal and intrapsychic factors which are faciHtating or hindering 
social change in the students' respective placements. 

Project-reports indicating integration of theoretical and practical data 
as well as evidence of students' ability to function as insightful and re- 
sponsible participants in ministries of social transformation will serve as 
bases for evaluation at the end of the Unit. 

It is anticipated that students' involvement in the program during the two quarters 

will average between 15 and 20 hours per week, including class time, study, and 

ministry responsibilities. 

IV. Admission 

Open to students who have completed two or more years of theological edu- 
cation and who have obtained the approval of the school in which they are 
matriculated. 

Open also to others with backgrounds in theological and sociological dis- 
ciplines and/ or in social change experience who have completed one year of 
theological education and who have also obtained the approval both of the 
school in which they are matriculated and of the Social Transformation 
teaching team. Approval of the teaching team should be requested through 
an application form which may be obtained from the office of the registrar 
at each school. The application should be submitted to a member of the 
teaching team prior to the completion of one's registration. 



CCTS 1-440 CELEBRATION: INTENSIVE UNIT I 

(Not offered 1976-77) 

I. Nature of the Unit 

Intensive Unit I is an experience in a learning-celebrating community for the 
advanced student who wishes to become an ARTIST-INTERPRETER-IN- 
STIGATOR of religious celebration. The phrase "artist-interpreter-instigator" 
indicates that the objectives of the Unit go beyond assisting the student to 
acquire the ability to function as leader of public worship which is character- 
istically expected of all ministers. The phrase "religious celebration" includes 
both the traditional forms of worship and also paraliturgical and other forms 
of communal celebration in the Judeo-Christian tradition. 

The Unit consists of one intensive quarter of involvement for which students 
will receive 6 QH or 9 QH (or 2 or 3 units) credit. With the approval of the 
respective institutions in which they are matriculated, students who are in- 
volved in the Unit may also enroll in one or two additional courses. 

II. Aim3 of the Unit 

The general aim of Intensive Unit I is to assist the student to engage in the 
crucial acts of becoming/ growing as an artist-interpreter-instigator, viz. : 

A. to experience and comprehend how communal celebration bursts out of 
a people from the events of their common life, and from intensive lived 
moments of individual persons; 

B. to experience communal celebration as a mobilization of expressive 
arts and spontaneity; and 

C. to learn to share in the common experience and felt understandings of 

18 



an actual people, especially the People of God, in such a way as to en- 
able them to transform their lived moments into communal symbol and 
fresh communal celebration. 

III. Structure of the Unit 

There are four principal strands in Intensive Unit I: expressive arts, basic 
theory of celebration, clinical experience, and reflection and evaluation. The 
ministerial preparation of the student will be integrated in terms of these 
strands through the use of various theological and non-theological disciplines 
and various educational methodologies. 

A. Expressive Arts 

The expressive arts will engage and be engaged by the community 
through two related avenues: a Creative Expression Workshop and an 
Expressive Arts Seminar. 

1. Creative Expression Workshop 

The faculty and students will be members in a learning-celebrating 
community. The process of building such a community will be initi- 
ated with a five-day founding event at a non-Cluster site. The found- 
ing event will include a Creative Expression Workshop, which will 
begin with an intensive exposure to some basic human experience 
(e.g., joy, pain, loneliness, hope, grief, etc.). Members of the com- 
munity will then express this experience in significant art forms and 
experience how other artists have expressed it. 

2. Expressive Arts Seminar 

During subsequent weeks the community will meet weekly on Thurs- 
day morning in an Expressive Arts Seminar in which members will 
share and possess each other's "mini-celebrations" and the work of 
representative artists. In this seminar members will work with various 
forms of expressive art in accord with their ability, e.g., drama, 
dance, music, painting, sculpture, song, celebrative preaching, photo- 
graphy, oral interpretation, creative writing, communications media, 
and staging environment. 

B. Basic Theory of Celebration 

Members of the community will meet weekly on Thursday afternoon to 
lay solid theoretical foundations for celebration. Other resource persons 
will be utilized periodically. Areas of study include the phenomenology 
of celebration, symbolism and celebration, analysis of classic/ contempo- 
rary examples of celebration, and structure and design of celebration. 

C. Clinical Experience 

Each student will be involved with a group outside the Cluster schools 
for the purpose of: 

1. Witnessing the process by which lived moments come to peak ex- 
pression in celebration in the group (first month), and 

2. Developing- teaching them to move, further in celebration experience 
and life-style (last two months). 

D. Reflection and Evaluation 

The community will meet weekly on Monday afternoon and evening to 
engage in reflection and evaluation of their experiences and further 
development of their abilities as instigators of celebration. 



19 



A project-report indicating integration of celebration theory and skills, 
as well as members' development as artists-interpreters-instigators of 
religious celebration within the community and within the non-Cluster 
groups with which they have worked will be assessed through self- 
evaluation, peer evaluation, and supervisory evaluation at the end of the 
Unit. 

IV. Admission 

Open to students who have completed two or more years of theological 
education and who have obtained the approval of the school in which they 
are matriculated. 

Open also to students (1) who have completed one year of theological edu- 
cation; (2) who have some of the following experiences and education (at 
least minimal ability -experience in an area of expressive arts, two or more 
courses in the general field of celebration, and adequate experience in actual 
situations of celebration); and (3) who have also obtained the approval both 
of the school in which they are matriculated and of the Celebration teaching 
team. Approval of the teaching team should be requested through an appli- 
cation form which may be obtained from the office of the registrar at each 
school.

Rationale 

The Church is at the threshold of a new era. The growing thrust toward 
unity on the economic and political planes, the deeper realization of cultural 
pluralism within that unity, and the greater involvement in the struggle for 
human dignity have all given new thrust and direction to the Church's task 
in the world today. 

The global scope and character of the problems demand an equal response. 
It is of the greatest importance that Christians of diverse national, racial, 



20 



class and theological backgrounds, perspective and commitments find ways 
to listen to and learn from one another. If American theological education is 
to make creative contributions to such issues as racism, the use and distribu- 
tion of the world's wealth and resources, the struggles for human liberation 
and the development of societal structures which are more open and just, it 
must do so as a community which has learned to reflect and act in an inter- 
national context. 

For some the response will go further. They desire to be persons of dialogue, 
to live a precarious existence between different cultural worlds. They aim 
to spend their lives, or part of them, with people of another culture, dis- 
covering ways to think and work together in Christ about the fundamental 
problems which confront the entire human family in relation to peace, jus- 
tice and survival. 

II. Nature of the Unit 

The concentration has a double major thrust which will serve the needs and 
goals of a wide variety of students. On the one hand, it will give high pri- 
ority to those students who desire to work or study in another cultural en- 
vironment and will help them acquire beginning levels of competence for ef- 
fective communication in cultures and subcultures other than their own. 

At the same time, the concentration will provide a wider range of students 
the opportunity to experience in a unique way the cultural assumptions and 
limits of their theological thinking, and to lay the foundation for a broader 
international, interracial and ecumenical understanding, concern and com- 
mitment both in their theological education as well as in their further min- 
istry. 

III. Aims of the Unit 

The general aims of Intensive Unit I include the following: 

A. to sensitize students to the diversity of cultural expression; 

B. to assist students to develop skills in the analysis of culture and com- 
munication and to acquire a beginning competence in cross-cultural 
communication ; 

C. to lay a foundation for students' understanding of, concern for, and co- 
operation in issues of international scope and character; 

D. to help students to interpret their experience to the wider Church in order 
to contribute to an international perspective on mission and ministry. 

IV. Structure of the Unit 

There are three principal components in Intensive Unit I: basic theory of 
culture and communication, field placements, integrative discussions ("de- 
briefings"). (Within the scheduled activities students enrolled for 6 QH may 
negotiate appropriately reduced involvement.) 

A. Basic Theory (Four weeks : March 28-April 22) 

The theoretical presentations will focus on such matters as understand- 
ing the ways in which cultural factors influence experiencing and symbol- 
ization, thereby influencing the ways in which communication is given 
and received; understanding the nature of any culture through a repre- 
sentative examination of selected contrasting cultures and sub-cultures 
in the light of cultural anthropological perspectives; understanding 
the theological issues involved in the cultural conditioning of all experi- 

21 



ence and symbolization ; understanding the nature of the communication 
process from theological, psychological and sociological perspectives; 
and understanding what it means theologically to communicate the 
meaning of the Christian faith. 

Such understanding will be addressed through the following topics: 

1. Culture: Nature and Origin; Enculturation—Ethnocentrism— Preju- 
dice; Culture Dynamics: Persistance and Change 

2. My Culture: Historical Background; Common Characteristics 

3. Communication Theory: Verbal—dialogue; Non-verbal 

4. Obstacles to Communication: Historical; Cultural 

5. Communication of the Gospel: 
A. Why: Theology of Mission 

B. How: Evangelization: Dialogue (Religious); Witness; Worship 

6. Global Awareness: Peace and Justice; Population Growth; Develop- 
ment 

7. Introduction to specific cultures of field placements. 

B. Field Placements (Three weeks: April 25-May 13) 

The field placement is an integral part of the Unit. It is designed to offer 
students an opportunity to practice and develop skills and to test theories 
of cross-cultural communication in an authentic or simulated cross- 
cultural life situation. 

During the 1977 Spring term, the type of field placement especially re- 
commended will be a three-week intensive "live-in" experience. Other 
types of field placement will be available to those who are able to com- 
mit themselves to some specific cross-cultural situation for at least two 
academic quarters. These latter placements would continue throughout 
the Spring quarter, but with greater intensity during April 25-May 13. 

Various field placements will be available between April 25 and May 13. 
Separate descriptions are available on request. Recent placements have 
included the following: 

1. East Africa 

2. Chicano-Indian : on location in rural New Mexico 

3. Latino: in Chicago area 

4. Black: in Chicago area 

All field placements embody the following features: 

1. an intensive community live-in experience in a cross-cultural situa- 
tion; 

2. an opportunity for the practice of cross-cultural skills; 

3. planned supervision and guidance; 

4. availability of a peer group, reflector group or other support group 

C. Integrative Discussions (Two weeks: May 16-27) 

Following the three-weeks of intensive field placement, students will 
engage in a two-week, post-field "de-briefing" period during which 
their cross-cultural field experiences will be reported on, analyzed and 
critically evaluated from the standpoint of personal learning and growth. 

22 



Every student will be expected to have kept a complete diary (log) of 
field experiences. 

A clear expectation of the "de-briefing" period is that all students will 
evaluate and process their field experience in such a way as to make con- 
crete plans for application in terms of ministry. These plans may be of 
an interpretative or vocational nature. 

V. Admission to the Unit 

Open to students who have completed one or more years of theological edu- 
cation and who have obtained the approval of the school in which they 
are matriculated. 

All students who have obtained appropriate approval for admission should 
register for the Unit during the registration period which will be held at each 
school during the week of February 7-11, 1977. 



CCTS 1-480 INTERPRETATION AND COMMUNICATION: 
TEACHING: INTENSIVE UNIT I 

(Not offered 1976-77) 

I. Nature of Unit 

Intensive Unit I is designed for advanced students who wish to become in- 
creasingly competent in (1) understanding and integrating basic orientations 
to the substance and style(s) of interpreting and communicating Christian 
faith which are operative in their own life situations and in those of repre- 
sentative groups with whom the church engages in ministry; (2) interpreting 
in their historical and contemporary contexts selected dimensions of the 
Judeo-Christian tradition and the modem world which are relevant to such 
life situations; and (3) communicating, and assisting others to communicate, 
effectively through teaching in the light of such understandings and inter- 
pretive abilities. The concentration is intended to be of value to students who 
plan to engage in a variety of teaching ministries, e.g. in local churches as 
pastors or directors of educational programs; in public or parochial schools 
as teachers or supervisors of teachers; in institutions of higher education as 
campus ministers or professors; and in organizations and agencies of various 
kinds as educational consultants. 

The Unit consists of one intensive quarter of involvement for which stu- 
dents will receive 6 QH or 9 QH (or 2 or 3 units) credit. With the approval 
of the respective institutions in which they are matriculated, students who 
are involved in the Unit may also enroll in one or two additional courses. 

II. Aims of the Unit 

The general aims of the Unit include the following: 

A. to assist students to enhance their understandings of the nature and 
dimensions of the hermeneutical task in relation to the life situations 
of people, to the contemporary world, and to the Judeo-Christian tradi- 
tion in light of pertinent philosophical, theological, scientific and artis- 
tic perspectives; 

B, to assist students to develop a growing understanding and appreciation 



23 



of (1) the predicaments and possibilities which characterize the Hfe situa- 
tions of individuals and groups, (2) the resources of the Judeo-Christian 
tradition and of other sources of insight which are relevant to such 
predicaments and possibilities, and (3) the teaching-learning theories 
and methods which may be employed to relate these resources to the hu- 
man predicaments and possibilities; 

C. to enable students to function effectively and collegially in enhancing 
specific ministries of interpretation and communication through teach- 
ing, and in assisting others to function in similar manner; 

D. to assist students to integrate (1) their understandings of the substance 
and style(s) which are appropriate to the relevant interpretation and 
communication of Christian faith in relation to human predicaments 
and possibilities with (2) their personal and professional self-understand- 
ing and functioning. 

III. Structure of the Unit 

There are three components in Intensive Unit I: an interpretive seminar, 
supervised ministry placements, and an integrative seminar. 

A. Interpretive Seminar 

In the interpretive seminar students and faculty will collegially develop 
teaching-learning activities and, as deemed appropriate, covenants which 
bring their several unique concerns and competencies to bear upon 
the achievement of the general aims of the Unit ~ particularly those 
represented in A and B above. However, in order to insure the avail- 
ability of certain teaching-learning activities and resources which partici- 
pants may choose to employ but which could not with certainty be de- 
veloped after the Unit has begun, the teaching team has taken the initia- 
tive to develop two broad sets of complementary options (and their cor- 
relative networks of resources) which will be discussed fully by all Unit 
participants before final decisions are made regarding their adoption 
and implementation. 

If the first broad option is adopted and implemented, early in the Unit 
students will be assisted by the teaching team to acquire familiarity with 
and experience in employing fundamental principles and methods of 
identifying, analyzing, and evaluating basic orientations to the sub- 
stance and style of interpreting and communicating Christian faith 
through teaching. Special attention may be given to acquiring such fa- 
miliarity and experience through an exploration of how these orienta- 
tions are embodied, for example, by Unit participants, by persons or 
periods of historic significance in participants' denominations and/or 
other groups, and by certain contemporary Chicagoland churches of 
various denominations and races. In carrying out such explorations 
through several observation visits to the selected churches, whose min- 
istries are characterized by unique creativities, consistencies, or con- 
stituencies, students will be assisted by local clergy and laity in identify- 
ing, analyzing, and evaluating their respective orientations to content 
and method of interpretation and communication of Christian faith 
through teaching. 

B. Supervised Ministry Placements 

The supervised ministry placements are designed to foster collegial reali- 

24 



zation of the several general aims of the Unit ~ especially that repre- 
sented in C above. 

If the second of the previously-mentioned broad options which have 
been developed by the teaching team is adopted and implemented, stu- 
dent teams (comprised of several members each) will be assisted to nego- 
tiate placements in settings in which they will serve during the Unit. 
For most student teams, it is anticipated that such placement will be 
in a local church (or ecumenical and interracial cluster of churches) 
in the vicinity of Hyde Park or Oak Brook — Lemont. 

It is not contemplated that student teams will be assigned to provide 
staff leadership for existing educational programs of the church /cluster. 
Rather, team members will serve as educational resource persons or con- 
sultants, together with clergy and laity in the respective settings, in a 
joint endeavor (1) to identify and to assess the effectiveness of the ori- 
entation(s) to the substance and style of interpreting and communicating 
Christian faith which are currently employed in selected teaching-learn- 
ing situations, (2) to identify critical needs which can be addressed 
through enhancing the substance and style of such interpretation and 
communication, (3) to design one or more significant teaching-learning 
events to address such needs; and (4) to provide appropriate leadership 
and/or direction in carrying out such event(s). The number of such 
events to be designed and led or directed by each student team will be 
determined by consultation among the student team, the teaching team, 
and the church /cluster representatives. 

As their respective schedules permit, and as the respective placement 
situations indicate, members of the teaching team will participate on 
location with student teams in carrying out the foregoing functions. 
However, it is expected that during the course of the Unit a member of 
the teaching team will participate appropriately in such functions in rela- 
tion to at least one of each student teams' teaching-learning events. 

Through consultative and supervisory relationships with student peers, 
faculty, and church/cluster clergy and laity, student team members will 
have opportunity to develop skills in evaluating process, product, and 
program dimensions of their collective experience. Such dimensions 
may include, respectively, (1) assessment of the planning and interaction 
among themselves and between themselves and those with whom they 
are involved in the respective placement settings; (2) assessment of the 
respective teaching-learning events; and (3) assessment of the contribu- 
tions of the Unit-as-a-whole to the equipping of students for interpre- 
tive and communicative ministries through teaching and also to the en- 
hancing of the respective churches' /clusters' ministries of this kind. 

Students who wish to explore the possibility of a year-long placement 
in a setting appropriate to the Unit, or who wish to explore the possi- 
bility of a non-church placement during the Unit should contact the 
teaching team early in the Fall quarter. 

Integrative Seminar 

In the integrative seminar students will have opportunity to pursue 

realization of the several general aims of the course ~ particularly that 

25 



represented in item D above. More specifically, it will provide occasion 
for students to engage in processes of further unifying conceptual, emo- 
tional, and behavioral dimensions of experience which bear upon the de- 
velopment of tKeir personal and professional self-understandings and 
competencies as interpreters and communicators of Christian faith 
through teaching. By such means as may commend themselves to Unit 
participants, effort will be made to draw together experiences in the 
integrative seminar (including observation visits to selected churches) 
and in the respective placement settings. Among such possible means is 
student utilization of the teaching team as resource persons and consul- 
tants in planning, implementing, and evaluating the teaching-learning 
event(s) in which the several teams are involved in their respective place- 
ment settings. Case studies, audio and video recordings, and individual 
and team evaluation procedures such as those noted earlier will also be 
available to provide constructive feedback and guidance from a variety 
of complementary perspectives for continuing development and inte- 
gration. 

IV. Admission to the Unit 

Open to students who have completed two or more years of theological 
education and who have obtained the approval of the school in which they 
are matriculated. 

Open also to students with backgrounds in theological and educational 
disciplines and/or with teaching experience who have completed one year 
of theological education and who have obtained the approval both of the 
school in which they are matriculated and of the Interpretation and Com- 
munication teaching team. Approval of the teaching team should be re- 
quested through an application form which may be obtained from the office 
of the registrar at each school.

I. Nature of the Unit 

Intensive Unit I is designed to enable students to achieve competence and 
effectiveness in the preaching task (1) through the interpretation of biblical 
foundations, theological traditions, and contemporary events and human 
experiences; and (2) through the functional integration of the interpretative 

26 



task in the context of sermon formulation and proclamation. 

The Unit consists of one intensive quarter of involvement for which stu- 
dents will receive 6 QH (or 2 units) credit. With the approval of the re- 
spective institutions in which they are matriculated, students who are in- 
volved in the Unit may also enroll in one or two additional courses. 

II. Aims of the Unit 

The general aims of Intensive Unit I are: 

A. to assist students to integrate the exegeses of Scripture and theological 
tradition with the exegesis of contemporary realities; 

B. to assist students to clarify and enrich their involvement and identifi- 
cation with both the role and content of preaching and the means by 
which it occurs, such as critical analyses of content and reflection upon 
the processes by which preaching happens; 

C. to assist the intensive-mix of students and faculty to become a labora- 
tory-model in which the agony and glory of preaching is experienced. 

III. Structural Components 

There are five principal components in Intensive Unit I. The scholarly 
and professional preparation of the student will be integrated in terms of 
these components through the use of various theological and functional 
disciplines and various educational methodologies. 

A. Modeling of and participating in the exegeses of Scripture and theology, 
and the exegesis of contemporary human experience; 

B. Researching ways of analyzing Scripture, dynamics by which tradi- 
tions shape theology, and methods of sermon development; 

C. Evaluating critically actual occasions of preaching by students in the 
classroom and in the parish and by selected preachers in the Chicago 
area; 

D. Exploring possibilities of various forms in which proclamation happens, 
such as story telling, conversation, prophetic confrontation, and media; 
and 

E. Ongoing supervision by participating faculty, student peers, and lay 
persons. 

IV. Admission to the Unit 

Open to students (1) who have completed one or more years of theological 
education; (2) who have completed at least two courses in biblical studies, 
two courses in history and theological thought, and one course in preaching; 
and (3) who have obtained the approval both of the school in which they 
are matriculated and of the Interpretation and Communication teaching 
team. Approval of the teaching team should be requested through an appli- 
cation form which may be obtained from the office of the registrar at each 
school. The application should be submitted to a member of the teaching 
team by January 28, 1977, after which students will be notified of their 
approval for admission. 

All students^who have obtained appropriate approval for admission should 
register for the Unit during the registration period which will be held at each 
school during the week of February 7-11, 1977.

CLUSTER COURSES OF 
COOPERATIVE INSTRUCTION 

In addition to the previously-described Areas of Concentration, the Cluster 
also offers team-taught courses which draw in an integrative, but less intensive, 
manner upon the resources of its member schools and the metropolitan Chicago 
area. These courses involve ecumenical and, frequently, interdisciplinary teaching 
teams, and are characterized by concern for students' personal-professional devel- 
opment and by concern to draw imaginatively upon the resources of significant 
persons, programs, and settings in metropolitan Chicago. 

Such courses are especially designed to enable students to experience the enrich- 
ing and stimulating give-and-take of dialogue and service in various ecumenical 
contexts without requiring the larger investment of time and commitment which 
are necessitated by the Cluster Areas of Concentration. 

Admission is open to students through the regular cross-registration procedures 
which are operative among the Cluster schools.

Communicating the Gospel in an Age of Science 

In this course the following goals will guide the 
study: (1) to introduce students to theologies 
and theologians which seek explicitly to address 
the contemporary scientific and technological 
worldview; (2) to acquaint students with basic 
work in philosophy of science and theological 
methodology which are relevant to such 
theological address; and (3) to assist students 
who are already familiar with matters represent- 
ed by goals (1) and (2) further to advance their 
understandings in these and/or related areas. In 
approaching such goals two methods will be 
emphasized: (1) individual tutorial sessions 
which will help the student to advance at 
his/her own pace, to deal with new per- 
spectives, and to prepare a research paper; and 
(2) seminar sessions which will deal with 
readings corresponding to the first two goals 
mentioned above. Readings in theology may in- 
clude issues such as those raised in Peacock's 
Science and the Christian Experiment, Teilhard 
de Chardin's Phenomenon of Man, Cobb's A 
Christian Natural Theology, as well as those 
treated in selected works of the convenors. 
Readings in the methodology and philosophy of 
science may include issues such as those dealt 
with in Gilkey's Religion and the Scientific 
Future, Barbour's Issues in Science and Religion, 
Kuhn's The Structure of Scientific Revolution 
Margenau's Open Vistas. Prerequisite: at least 
two courses in systematic or philosophical

What can the churches contribute to world 
peace? What understandings of world peace 
might guide religious thought and action toward 
a world without war? What theological and 
political standards are involved in setting limits 
and determining priorities for peace activities? 
How can the concern for world peace become a 
regular part of ministry at every level of church 
life? Eight Chicago-area seminary faculty in- 
cluding the instructors of this course have met 
regularly as the curriculum development task 
force of the World Without War Council- 
Midwest to design an experimental course ad- 
dressing these questions. The course is expected 
to treat such topics as : the global political con- 
ditions for peace; the means and limits of 
citizen action for peace in the United States, 
with special emphasis on the role of the chur- 
ches; and the theological bases for, and 
meanings of, the issues of global politics and

Advanced Seminar in Theology and the Scien- 
ces 

The seminar is designed as a forum for papers 
by theological and scientific faculty and ad- 
vanced students. It seeks to move toward a 
theology which is solidly grounded in the best 
of today's scientific understandings and which 
at the same time may be dynamic in eliciting 
religious feelings and behavior characteristic of 
the best Christian tradition whereby persons are 
led to appreciate the reality of God's sovereign- 
ty and grace which are manifest in environing 
nature and in human forms, and to find thereby 
a new meaning, hope, sense of duty, and 
beatific perspective in God's realm. 

Each weekly session will be the occasion for the 
presentation and critical evaluation of one or 
more papers exploring an interpretation of 
historic religious doctrines in the light of the 
sciences. Among the historic religious doctrines 
that may be interpreted are such primary 
Christain categories as God, Creation, Human 
Nature, Sin, Salvation, Church, Revelation, and 
Mission to the World. No specific topic is ex- 
cluded per se, no matter how out of theological 
favor it may presently be or how seemingly in- 
congruous with recent secular doctrine. For the 
seminar, the light of the sciences will be sought 
primarily through focus upon the so-called 
"hard" sciences that have provided a new world 
view or "metaphysics." These sciences include, 
physics, biology, sociobiology, and 
psychobiology. However, this primary focus 
does not exclude perspectives from the 
psychosocial sciences, which will also be heavily 
involved. At the core of its activity the seminar 
will explore and test a basic hypothesis: that 
recent scientific information suggests that 
evolving psychobiological and sociobiological 
systems require religions as value cores, that the 
traditonal religion of each culturetype has been 
selected for the same kinds of life-producing 
wisdom as have been selected in the genotypes 
for all animal organisms and societies, and that 
all of this is generated and selected by a creative 
system of dynamic reality far transcending any 
of its creatures. 

Admission for credit: While the seminar is ex- 
pected primarily to involve the presentation of 
papers by faculty and advanced students, ad- 
mission for credit is also open to other students 



whose proposals for a paper to be presented and 
whose background in theology and science is 
deemed satisfactory by the convenors. High per- 
formance in CCTS T-472 may be deemed suf- 
ficient for admission, and capacity to discuss 
critically and to advance themes such as those 
published in Zygon, Journal of Religion and 
Science would provide excellent grounding for 
any particpants in the seminar. 

Admission without credit: Participation is also 
open to Cluster students and faculty who have a 
concern to become more informed about and/or 
to participate in this research and development 
program without obligating themselves to meet 
the specific course requirements. Such persons 
should inform one of the convenors in advance 
of their intention to participate in this manner. 

Requirements for students taking the seminar 
for credit will be (1) to present an original paper 
of some 20-30 doublespaced pages (during one 
of the last five weeks of the quarter) on a topic 
approved by the convenors and to defend it suc- 
cessfully during its discussion, and (2) to present 
a one- or two-page critical and constructive 
analysis of the proceedings of each of the other 
papers and discussions in the seminar sessions.

CLUSTER DAY COURSES 

A continuing concern of the Cluster is to enrich the teaching-learning experi- 
ences of students and faculty from each of its member institutions. The Cluster 
therefore seeks to enable students to have increased access to outstanding teachers 
and courses and to groups of students which they would otherwise be unlikely 
to encounter. The Cluster likewise seeks to enable faculty members to participate 
in rewarding teaching relationships with students and colleagues who represent 
traditions and perspectives not cusomarily encountered in their own institutions. 

A special curricular structure, known as "Cluster Day," has been created to en- 
courage and facilitate such interchange, especially between urban and suburban 
member schools. During each quarter, usually on Thursday, several outstanding 
electives which are representative of various disciplines and heritages in the Cluster 
are offered at locations which constitute an equitable distribution of travel time 
among the participating students. Each course is scheduled to meet only once a 
week and to avoid rush-hour traffic. The first session of each course is held on the 
campus of the designated instructor. Thereafter the number of students enrolled 
from the respective seminaries provides the basis upon which each class will work 
out an equitable determination regarding the location and number of future week- 
ly sessions. Such a principle of operation permits the location at which each 
Cluster Day course is offered to be highly responsive to the level of interest and 
initiative of students from the respective schools. 

Enrollment in all Cluster Day courses is open to students through the regular 
cross-registration procedures which are operative among the Cluster schools.

Communicating the Gospel in an Age of Science 

In this course the following goals will guide the 
study: (1) to introduce students to theologies 
and theologians which seek explicitly to address 
the contemporary scientific and technological 
worldview; (2) to acquaint students with basic 
work in philosophy of science and theological 
methodology which are relevant to such 
theological address; and (3) to assist students 
who are already familiar with matters repre- 
sented by goals (1) and (2) further to advance 
their understandings in these and/or related 
areas. In approaching such goals two methods 
will be emphasized: (1) individual tutorial 
sessions which will help the student to advance at 
his/her own pace, to deal with new per- 
spectives, and to prepare a research paper and 
(2) seminar sessions which will deal with 
readings corresponding to the first two goals 
mentioned above. Readings in theology may in- 



clude issues such as those raised in Peacock's 
Science and the Christian Experiment. Teilhard 
de Chardin's Phenomenon of Man, Cobb's A 
Christian Natural Theology, as well as those 
treated in selected works of the convenors. 
Readings in the methodology and philosophy of 
science may include issues such as those dealt 
with in Gilkey's Religion and the Scientific 
Future, Barbour's Issues in Science and Religion, 
Kuhn's The Structure of Scientific Revolution, 
Margenau's Open Vistas. Prerequisite: at least 
two courses in systematic or philosophical 
theology, and approval of the convenors.

political standards are involved in setting limits 
and determining priorities for peace activities? 
How can the concern for world peace become a

life? Eight Chicago-area seminary faculty in- 
cluding the instructors of this course have met 
regularly as the curriculum development task 
force of the World Without War Council- 
Midwest to design an experimental course ad- 
dressing these questions. The course is expected

CLUSTER BLACK STUDIES 



The Cluster endeavors to strengthen and to stimulate initiatives on the part of 
its member institutions to the issues posed for theological education and ministry 
by the experiences and perspectives of Blacks. An important structural expression 
of this endeavor is the Cluster Black Studies Committee. With staff support from 
the Cluster Black Studies Coordinator, the Committee exercises such leadership 
functions as the following: (1) to assist Blacks of the Cluster in articulating their 
concerns and to assist Cluster institutions in addressing such concerns; (2) to de- 
sign strategies for incorporating issues raised by the experiences and perspectives 
of Blacks into the mainstream of the consciousness and curricula of the several 
institutions; (3) to plan activities which educate members of the Cluster com- 
munity regarding the nature and effects of racism and of ways in which it may be 
effectively overcome; (4) and to facilitate the development of resources to fund 
and staff such enterprises as the foregoing. 

Approximately 54 Black students are pursuing studies in Cluster schools.

change, and to the negative consequences of in- 
decision in the midst of change. Open to pastors

a wider range of students the opportunity to ex- 
perience in a unique way the cultural assump- 
tions and limits of their theological thinking, 
and to lay the foundation for a broader in- 
ternational, interracial and ecumenical un-

CLUSTER WOMEN'S ISSUES 

The Cluster undertakes to support and to advocate commitments by its member 
institutions to the issues raised for theological education and ministry by the ex- 
periences and perspectives of women. A significant organizational manifestation of 
this undertaking is the Cluster Women's Issues Committee. With staff support 
from the Cluster Women's Issues Coordinator, the Committee provides such lead- 
ership functions as the following: (1) to assist women of the Cluster, including 
spouses, in expressing their concerns and to assist Cluster institutions in respond- 
ing to such concerns; (2) to design strategies for incorporating the issues posed by 
the experiences and perspectives of women into the focal awareness and program- 
ming of the various institutions, (3) to plan activities which educate members of 
the Cluster community regarding the nature and effects of sexism and of means 
by which it may be effectively overcome; and (4) to facilitate the development of 
resources to fund and staff such enterprises as the above. Activities through which 
the Committee seeks to serve women and the larger Cluster constituency include 
publication of a periodical, PersonAge ; formulation and presentation of specific 
curricular and personnel recommendations related to women's concerns; consulta- 
tion and cooperation with women's caucuses and wives' groups in the respective 
Cluster schools; and sponsorship and leadership of such programs and projects 
as conferences, workshops, retreats, orientations, survey research, film and dia- 
logue groups, socials, and student-faculty rap sessions. 

Approximately 213 women students are pursuing studies in Cluster schools.

on the role and identity of "pastors" as it has 
been defined and perceived by both clergy and 
laity in the past (understanding what has 
traditionally been a male model). It will then 
turn to the dynamics of change within the 
Church as women assume increasing leadership 
in ministry to congregations, addressing in par- 
ticular the question of how changes in 
traditional roles affect the identity of men and 
women, both clergy and laity. Course will in- 
clude dialogue with and panel discussions 
among: women pastors (employed and unem- 
ployed), spouses of male and female pastors, 
and male pastors who have worked closely with

Counseling: Changes in Roles and Role Per- 
ceptions for Women 

This course will focus on methods of counseling 
women whose roles and life situations are in 
transition, i.e. : marriage to divorce, career to 
retirement, non-mother to mother, etc. Another 
focus will be counseling women whose per- 
ceptions change within roles. The concern will 
be to explore alternatives to counseling models 
which tend to reinforce stereotypical un- 
derstandings of women's roles and women's 
responses to ongoing circumstances in their 
lives. There is no prerequisite for the course, but 
it is presumed that students who register for this

CLUSTER LATINO STUDIES 

The Cluster seeks to foster and enhance the concern of its member institutions 
for issues generated in theological education and ministry by the experiences and 
perspectives of Latinos. The Cluster's efforts are guided through its Latino Studies 
Committee, which is comprised of representatives from the several schools. 

The Committee provides leadership in addressing such functions as the 
following: (1) to assist Latinos of the Cluster in voicing their concerns and to assist 
Cluster institutions in responding to such concerns; (2) to frame proposals for in- 
corporating issues represented by the experiences and perspectives of Latinos into 
the understandings and program offerings of the several institutions; (3) to plan 
activities which educate members of the Cluster community regarding the nature 
and effects of ethnic discrimination and of means by which it can be effectively 
overcome; and (4) to facilitate the development of resources to fund and staff such 
enterprises as the above. 

Approximately 41 Latino students are pursuing studies in Cluster schools.

A collaborative effort, utilizing Luther's writ- 
ings, to arrive at an understanding and appre- 
ciation of his approach to such themes as justi- 
fication. Baptism, the Lord's Supper, faith, 
revelation, reason, ministry, and the social or- 
der. In order to supplement group discussion 
and individual reading, periodic lectures will be 
given primarily to summarize the insights 
gained from the collaborative study of the prim- 
ary sources, as well as to offer some insight into 
the influence of the proposed themes on such 
Protestant theologians as Kierkegaard, Barth, 
Bultmann, Tillich, and Pannenberg, and to 
briefly indicate the direction which these theolo- 
gians, as well as others, have taken in their 
theologizing upon them. Useful, but not nec- 
essary, is some background in the history of the 
Reformation. Since the emphasis is primarily 
on reading and discussion, the only 
requirement will be a project based on the

mined by the individual student in consultation

Advanced Seminar in Theology and the 

Sciences 

The seminar is designed as a forum for papers 
by theological and scientific faculty and ad- 
vanced students. It seeks to move toward a the- 
ology which is solidly grounded in the best of 
today's scientific understandings and which at 
the same time may be dynamic in eliciting 
religious feelings and behavior characteristic 
of the best Christian tradition whereby persons 
are led to appreciate the reality of God's sover- 
eignty and grace which are manifest in environ- 
ing nature and in human form, and to find 
thereby a new meaning, hope, sense of duty, 
and beatific persective in God's realm. 

Each weekly session will be the occasion for the 
presentation and critical evaluation of one or 
more papers exploring an interpretation of his- 
toric religious doctrines in the light of the sci- 
ences. Among the historic religious doctrines 
that may be interpreted are such primary Chris- 
tian categories as God, Creation, Human Na- 
ture, Sin, Salvation, Church, Revelation, and 
Mission to the World. No specific topic is ex- 
cluded per se, no matter how out of theological 
favor it may presently be or how seemingly 
incongruous with recent secular doctrine. For 
the seminar, the light of the sciences will be 
sought primarily through focus upon the so- 
called "hard" sciences that have provided a new 
world view or "metaphysics." These sciences 
include physics, biology, sociobiology, and psy- 
chobiology. However, this primary focus does 
not exclude perspectives from the psychosocial 
sciences, which will also be heavily involved. 
At the core of its activity the seminar will ex- 
plore and test a basic hypothesis: that recent 
scientific information suggests that evolving 
psychobiological and sociobiological systems 
require religions as value cores, that the tradi- 
tional religion of each culturetype has been 
selected for the same kinds of life-producing 
wisdom as have been selected in the genotypes 
for all animal organisms and societies, and 
that all of this is generated and selected by a 
creative system of dynamic reality far tran- 
scending any of its creatures. 

Admission for credit: While the seminar is ex- 
pected primarily to involve the presentation of 
papers by faculty and advanced students, ad- 
mission for credit is also open to other stu- 
dents whose proposals for a paper to be pre- 
sented and whose background in theology and 



74 



Theological Studies 



science is deemed satisfactory by the convenors. 
High performance in CCTS T-472 may be 
deemed sufficient for admission, and capacity to 
discuss critically and to advance themes such as 
those published in Zygon, Journal of Religion 
and Science would provide excellent grounding 
for any participants in the seminar. 

Admission without credit: Participation is also 
open to Cluster students and faculty who have 
a concern to become more informed about and/ 
or to participate in this research and develop- 
ment program without obligating themselves 
to meet the specific course requirements. Such 
persons should inform one of the convenors 
in advance of their intention to participate 
in this manner. 

Requirements for students taking the seminar 
for credit will be (1) to present an original paper 
of some 20-30 doublespaced pages (during one 
of the last five weeks of the quarter) on a topic 
approved by the convenors and to defend it 
successfully during its discussion, and (2) to 
present a one- or two-page critical and construc- 
tive analysis of the proceedings of each of the 
other papers and discussions in the seminar 
sessions. Initial session at home of Dr. Burhoe,

Introduction to Moral Theology 

This course is intended for students who have 
had no systematic approach to moral theology. 
The stress here will be on the basic principles 
guiding human action and attitude, in so far 
as they are compatible with the essentials of 
Christian tradition and suitable for facilitating 
conscience formation and decision-making in 
the face of modern conflicts and problems.

Principles of Christian Morality 

The course will focus on the principles and 
processes involved in Christian decision-mak- 
ing. It will consider the formation of conscience 
from the viewpoint of a faculty psychology, 
from a developmental viewpoint, and from the 
viewpoint of Lonergan's intentional analysis. 
Human freedom and responsibility will be con- 
sidered in their psychological and theological 
dimensions. The basics of natural law and the 
possibility of a formal existential ethic will be 
treated.

Ethical Studies 



Content: two sections of material, not coter- 
minous with the two quarters: 

1. Study of the structure of contemporary 
Christian ethics by reference to its histori- 
cal development in purpose, content, and 
method, both within and outside of the 
Roman Catholic tradition. 

2. Exploration of a systematic and construc- 
tive Christian ethic, both individual and 
social, suitable to meet the needs of today's 
evolving ministry. Deals with such topics 
as: (a) human freedom and grace within 
the religious context of moral decision; 

(b) the process of decision and the develop- 
ment of moral norms to direct decision 
within the dialogic Christian community; 

(c) the process of formation of conscience 
and of reason-giving; (d) the character- 
istics of virtuous or vicious decision-taking 
and its impact on both person and com- 
munity. 

Participants will share readings, lectures, and 
class discussions in dealing with the two sec- 
tions, and will be expected to submit written re- 
flections at the end of each section on the 
material covered.

this analysis of the valuing process will be criti- 
cally evaluated, in relation to developmental 
theories of moral consciousness as well as a 
Christian theological perspective. On the practi- 
cal side the theory will be applied to moral

cept of social structural sin.

The Virtue Approach to Moral Theology 

The role of virtue has been prominent in tradi- 
tional Catholic moral theology. It has recently 
suffered an eclipse, while some in the Protestant 
tradition have evidenced a new interest in it. 
These trends will be evaluated against a study 
of the meaning of virtue in tradition, of the 
renewed interest in it, of its significance for the 
meaning of moral theology, and of the criti- 
cisms that can be brought to bear. The virtues 
included here are the theological and cardinal 
virtues, and the virtues of religion, piety and 
fidelity.

peace? What understandings of world peace 
might guide rehgious thought and action toward 
a world without war? What theological and 
political standards are involved in setting limits 
and determining priorities for peace activities? 
How can the concern for world peace become a

life? Eight Chicago-area seminary faculty in- 
cluding the instructors of this course have met 
regularly as the curriculum development task 
force of the World Without War Council — 
Midwest to design a course addressing these 
questions. The course is expected to treat such 
topics as: the global political conditions for 
peace; the means and limits of citizen action for 
peace in the United States, with special em- 
phasis on the role of the churches; and the 
theological bases for, and meanings of, the 
issues of global politics and citizen action.

Value Study and Moral Theology 

There is great interest in value analysis and 
value clarification. "Value" is a term that is not 
familiar to traditional Catholic moral theology. 
This will be an attempt to study the significance

giving (in such matters as the right of privacy, 
freedom of speech, divorce, capital punishment, 
abortion), and the way in which ethicians, 
particularly theological thinkers, approach 
the same or related issues. Emphasis will fall 
upon the possibility of cross-fertilizing between 
theological reasoning and legal reasoning in the 
context of distinctively pragmatic. North Amer- 
ican characteristics of mind. Participants will 
be encouraged to add their own special interests 
in methodology to the comparison. Common 
readings and discussion of examples allowing

tian anthropology in which to ground an under- 
standing of human love and sexuality. An effort 
will be made to present an integrated picture of 
the multiple dimensions of human love. This 
will serve as a basis for the second half of the 
course which will consider special ethical issues : 
contraception, celibacy, homosexuality, marital 
love and fidelity.

Intemperance: Moral Evaluation 

By "intemperance" is meant the problem asso- 
ciated with alcholism and drugs in contempo- 
rary American culture. It will also be extended 
to include prostitution and pornography. Data 
on these practices will be studied, and assessed 
for their import, especially in private and social 
morality. Approaches by way of "medicine" 
and law will be considered. The underlying con- 
cern here is to ascertain the procedure of fash- 
ioning a moral theology that is attuned to 
cultural conditions. 
MacDonald MW2-3:15 Fall 

CTU E-484 
Divorce 

Divorce will be studied against a broad theo- 
logical background, with the focus on its moral 
implications. Scripture and church tradition 
will be given special attention. Ecumenical con- 
cerns in the Orthodox and Protestant traditions 
will be included. The main context for this 
study will be the Catholic position on the nature 



of marriage. Pastoral considerations will con- 
clude this study, such as the implications of the 
current divorce trend, the practical difficulties 
experienced by divorced persons and the recent 
attempts of concerned clergy to respond to these 
problems.

Slavery and Emancipation 

An exploration, from a theological perspective, 
of the developing Christian response to the 
socio-political institution of "slavery" from the 
pre-Christian Old Testament prophets, 
through the New Testament period, into the era 
of emancipation, up to contemporary efforts 
to deal with the New World and with post- 
industrial society's moral equivalents of slavery 
—the "wage" system in industrial society and the 
"welfare" system in political society, as well 
as the "imperialist" system in international 
society. Attention will be given to means em- 
ployed in various eras to end oppression or 
restrain brutality involved in "work" systems 
and class systems, especially as these relate to 
property "ownership" and political power.

Theology of Revolution 

In order to provide a realistic context in which 
to theologize about revolution, the course will 
begin with an introduction to concrete revolu- 
tionary situations past and present. These will 
be interpreted through readings from Crane 
Brinton, Hannah Arendt and Franz Fanon. 
The scene will then shift to the theological 
ethical sphere as various attempts to construct 
a theology of revolution by contemporary 
Christian authors are examined in some depth. 
There will be a particular focus on the writings 
of Latin American theologians but the models 
put forward by North American authors will 
also have a hearing. The final part of the course 
will involve a discussion of constructive state- 
ments on a theology of revolution by members

discussion will be followed by choice of a par- 
ticular problem area in legal regulation of hu- 
man activity, preparation of an oral presenta- 
tion, and final written expression of some di- 
mension of the participant's reflection on the 
problem. Such questions as criminal correction, 
abortion, prostitution, pornography, equal ac- 
cess to the courts, environmental pollution, 
planning of mass transportation, commitment 
procedures for the mentally ill, civil disobedi- 
ence, conscientious objection, military justice

The Valuing Process: One Key to Ministerial 

Effectiveness 

Values clarification has recently emerged as a 
key tool for ministry. This course deals with 
both the theoretical and skill components 
necessary for fostering effective valuing. By 
personally experiencing the valuing processes 
along with related readings and cognitive input, 
participants simultaneously explore their own 
values while learning methods they can use. 
This course has two foci: (1) discovery and 
development of one's own value system, and 
(2) learning the theoretical basis and pastoral 
strategies necessary to move ministerial situa- 
tions from fact and theory levels to the personal 
relevance of the values level. The initial focus 
will be upon the value and meaning of time and 
how we spend it in our lives. The course will 
conclude with an examination of various Faith 
and Justice documents from the denominations 
represented.

Advanced Seminar on the Practice of Ministry 

in the Context of the Sciences 

The seminar is designed as a forum for presen- 
tations by theological and scientific faculty, 
practicing ministers, lay persons, and advanced 
students seeking: (1) to identify challenges 
posed for the effective practice of ministry in a 
society whose understandings of reality are 
profoundly shaped by modern scientific world- 
views; and (2) to explore ways in which 
theological curricula and their several disciplines 
might more creatively assist ministers to address 
such challenges. 

Intended primarily as a workshop for Cluster 
faculty, the seminar is open to faculty from 
other Chicago-area schools (including those in 
depatments of theology, religious studies, and 



the various disciplines of the sciences and 
humanities); invited ministers and lay persons; 
and a limited number of advanced students. 
Presentations will be selected by the convenors 
from representatives of these several groups. 

Faculty wishing to participate are requested to 
notify Dr. Williams in advance, indicating their 
special concerns and potential offerings, if any. 
Students may enroll for credit or as auditors 
upon approval of the convenors. Students 
enrolled for credit are expected to prepare an 
original paper on a topic approved by the con- 
venors and to prepare brief critical and con- 
structive analyses of the proceedings of each 
session. Initial session at home of Dr. Williams,

ANNOUNCEMENTS 

CLUSTER LIBRARY SERVICES

to students and faculty. The combined Cluster library collections comprise over 
775,000 volumes and represent one of the largest collections among theological 
consortia in the nation. A Union List of 1600 current periodicals assists Cluster 
library users in locating desired titles, and all Cluster library users have access to 
the Cluster Union Catalog of holdings acquired since July 1972, which is located at 
the Jesuit/ Lutheran /McCormick Libraries. The loan of books or periodicals be- 
tween Cluster schools is facilitated by the use of an interlibrary teletype and courier 
system, and direct access to all Cluster libraries is provided by a Cluster LD. card. 
A staff of twenty library professionals with various subject specializations is 
available to assist users with reference and research problems. The Cluster libraries 
have uniform policies for loan periods, care of reserve books, reference books, 
periodicals and costs for photocopying.

CLUSTER WORLD MISSION INSTITUTE 

The seventh annual Cluster World Mission Institute will be held March 27-April 
2, 1977. The theme will be "Spiritualities for Survival: A discussion of what it 
means to be a Christian Today." With ecumenical and international leadership, 
the Institute brings together students, missionaries, pastors, administrators, and 
scholars to identify and address problems and concerns that are of transcultural 
and international import. 

Institute topics in recent years have included The Role of the Missionary, 
Mission in One World, Evangelization and Human Development in the Third 
World, and From Independence to Interdependence in World Mission. A list of 
available publications, manuscripts, and cassette tapes related to previous In- 
stitutes may be obtained from the Cluster office. 

The Cluster International Programs Committee, assisted by the Cluster In- 
ternational Programs Coordinator, will announce full particulars concerning the 
1977 Institute upon their availability. 

The Cluster World Mission Institute is an integral component in the network of 
resources available to assist persons to understand the mission and ministry of the 
church in global perspective and to communicate Christian faith in cultures and 
subcultures other than their own. As such, the Institute complements the Cluster 
Area of Concentration in Cross-Cultural Communication; the regular World 
Mission Studies course offerings; and various special programs planned by, with, 
and for international students and visiting faculty and lecturers from other nations. 

122 



CLUSTER THEOLOGICAL LANGUAGE COURSES 

In addition to the courses in biblical languages listed among the regular course 
offerings, non-credit courses in French, German and Latin are offered through the 
Cluster during each quarter of the academic year as warranted by student interest. 
The aim of the courses is to assist students to achieve facility in reading theological 
literature in the respective languages. Such facility is frequently employed to fulfill 
language requirements for certain degree programs. A nominal fee is charged. For 
further information contact the Cluster office. 

CENTER FOR ADVANCED STUDY IN RELIGION AND SCIENCE 

Historical Background. The Center for Advanced Study in Religion and Science 
(CASIRAS) is an independent incorporated institution with an Advisory Board 
comprised of approximately one hundred internationally renowned scholars and 
scientists representing all major disciplines. Since 1970, CASIRAS has developed 
an increasingly close affiliation and effective working relationship with the 
Chicago Cluster of Theological Schools. 

The purposes of such cooperative relationship are (1) to achieve greater in- 
tegration of scientific views of the nature of humans and their enrichment with the 
convictions by which they make their fundamental decisions ~ thereby to 
revitalize and universalize the long-evolved wisdom and power inherent in the 
religious dimension of culture ~ and (2) to enrich the education of those preparing 
for and engaged in ministry by enabling them to participate in the processes of in- 
vestigation and reflection through which such revitalization and universalization 
may be realized. The involvement of CASIRAS in the following endeavors reflects 
such purposes : 

Advanced Seminar in Theology and the Sciences. The seminar was begun at 
Meadville/ Lombard Theological School in 1965 under the direction of Ralph Wen- 
dell Burhoe, and is one of the precursors of Cluster faculty and student in- 
volvement in an interinstitutional and interdisciplinary research and development 
project. The seminar and related conferences have provided Cluster personnel with 
opportunities for small-group discussion of new insights from the sciences for un- 
derstanding human nature and destiny with such internationally distinguished 
scientists (including some Nobel Prize winners) as: H. Stanley Bennett, J. 
Bronowski, Sanborn C. Brown, Donald T. Campbell, Theodosius Dobzhansky, 
Alfred E. Emerson, Sir John Eccles, Clifford Geertz, Benson E. Ginsburg, Garrett 
Hardin, Dwight J. Ingle, Aharon Katchalsky-Katzir, Hermann Joseph Muller, 
Michael Polanyi, Van Rensselaer Potter, C. L. Prosser, Harlow Shapley, Sol Tax, 
and Anthony F. C. Wallace. Many of the papers shared by such scholars in the 
seminar have been published in Zygon or elsewhere and represent keys to new 
breakthroughs of the wall separating religious and scientific understanding. Local 
and other theological faculty have also employed the seminar as a forum for 
presenting outstanding papers which foster pioneering understandings of a more 
positive relation of religion and science and which, upon publication, constitute a 
growing literature for such breakthroughs. The current offerings, CCTS 1-570: 
Advanced Seminar on the Practice of Ministry in the Context of the Sciences and 
CCTS T-572: Advanced Seminar in Theology and the Sciences, are described on 
pp. 28-29, 32. 

Fellows and Associates. A limited number of theologians and scientists from 
local as well as from West and East Coast institutions have been appointed Fellows 

123 



and Associates of CASIRAS, sometimes for a sabbatical year, where they have 
written papers and books with the benefit and guidance and critical review by 
others associated with the Center. Several ministers have also come to CASIRAS 
as Associates for extended periods of continuing education. Their studies have 
similarly led to significant papers in the field, some of which have been published. 

Courses. From its inception CASIRAS has provided team-taught courses for 
Cluster students pursuing basic professional degrees. In 1970-71 the Center 
pioneered in organizing the Cluster's first year-long sequence, "Man and His En- 
vironment," which involved 12 faculty from 5 seminaries and an ecologist from a 
neighboring university, together with some 20 students from 5 schools. Other in- 
terinstitutionally team-taught courses have followed, and a description of the 
current offering, CCTS T-472: Communicating the Gospel in an Age of Science, 
may be found on pp. 29-30. 

In addition to offering courses on the basic professional degree level, CASIRAS 
has been involved in thesis advising for advanced academic degrees. Moreover, 
from the outset CASIRAS has participated with faculties of Cluster schools in 
academic planning, including the development of (1) professional degree programs 
for students preparing for ministry and for clergy engaged in continuing 
education; (2) academic doctoral studies for future teachers and researchers 
within the framework of existing degree programs in the Cluster schools; and (3) 
postdoctoral programs for faculty. 

Conferences and Symposia. For many years CASIRAS, together with its af- 
filiated membership society, the Institute on Religion in an Age of Science (IRAS), 
has organized conferences and symposia on religion and the sciences. Among the 
more recent of such endeavors is a conference generated by four members of local 
theological faculties under the chairmanship of Philip Hefner of the Lutheran 
School of Theology at Chicago. Dealing with "The Human Prospect: Heilbroner's 
Challenge to Religion and Science," certain of the conference papers are published 
in Zygon (September, 1975). Many less formal discussions, including occasional ad 
hoc gatherings with other faculty and creative leaders in the field who are visiting 
in the Chicago area have also been arranged for students and faculty of the 
Cluster. 

Publishing. CASIRAS and IRAS are the joint publishers of Zygon, Journal of 
Religion and Science, edited by Ralph W. Burhoe. The journal has been published 
at the University of Chicago Press since 1966; its editorial offices are housed with 
the Cluster. Communications from religious and scientific personnel indicate that 
this journal, whose back-issue sales have been highest among the 33 journals of the 
University Press, constitutes an unusually valuable resource for those concerned 
with the new thrust to vitalize the religious message by rejoining religious and 
scientific knowledge. 

Guided Research and Study. CASIRAS makes available through the Cluster op- 
portunities which are unique among American theological schools for guided 
research and study in the area of theology and the sciences.

Science, 1100 East 55th Street, Chicago, Illinois 60615. Phone: (312) 667-3500, ext.

INSTITUTE ON THE CHURCH IN URBAN-INDUSTRIAL SOCIETY 

The Institute on the Church in Urban-Industrial Society (ICUIS), based at Mc- 
Cormick Theological Seminary, was established in 1966 by the Presbyterian Insti- 
tute of Industrial Relations in cooperation with the Advisory Group on Urban 
and Industrial Mission, Commission on World Mission and Evangelism, World 
Council of Churches. While retaining these historic relationships, during 1975 
ICUIS has become located with the Chicago Cluster of Theological Schools and 
has established relationships with a wider range of American denominations. 

126 



The Advisory Group on Urban and Industrial Mission, W.C.C, "recognized 
the Institute on the Church in Urban-Industrial Society as the one centre mandated 
by it to provide information and consultation on training facilities for urban and 
industrial ministries as well as an international reference centre for literature and 
programme information in this field." In line with this mandate ICUIS performs a 
variety of data-collecting functions. 

As a center for the gathering of information, ICUIS provides an information 
bank which draws upon a continuing flow of case studies, project reports, articles, 
correspondence, books and other materials coming out of the church's involve- 
ment in the issues of urbanization, technological change, international justice and 
human development. This material is selected, annotated, indexed and distributed 
among a world-wide network in a monthly Abstract Service and a quarterly 
Notes on Urban-Industrial Mission. Any of the more than 3,000 items in the 
ICUIS files, which are cross-indexed topically and geographically, can be retrieved 
upon request. Retrieval is facilitated by a regular Quarterly Index to the Abstract 
Service. The ICUIS information system is backed up by over 100 file drawers of 
materials on issues, projects and studies on urban-industrial mission. 

Other resurces currently being organized by ICUIS are a library of over 4000 
color slides on the church's role in the development of people world-wide and a 
switchboard for speakers and other resources for programs on the internationali- 
zation of mission. 

Besides linking people engaged in the church's world-wide urban-industrial 
mission through information exchange, the resources of ICUIS have been used 

as models of involvement by those engaged in urban-industrial and metropolitan 
mission programs around the world ; 

as teaching material by seminary and college professors in courses on church and 
society, the theology of mission, metropolitan and regional development, tech- 
nology and culture, and in continuing education and action training programs; 

as research material for students in courses or projects related to the church's 
involvement in societal issues; 

as a program resource by women's associations, couples' clubs, and young adult 
groups on issues related to the international dimensions of urbanization and 
technological change; 

as the basis for mission institutes and orientation programs for those going over- 
seas or for those returning from overseas assignments and for overseas persons 
assigned to ICUIS for periods of specialized study and action; 

as the basis for preparing bibliographies and program materials for special pro- 
gram emphases of church agencies. 

The resources of ICUIS are available to church agencies and local churches 
through the Abstract Service and other publications of ICUIS which provide up- 
to-date information on the international dimensions of the church's ur- 
ban-industrial mission; 

through the indexed material and the background files which provide program 
resources on the issues of metropolitan and technological change world- 
wide ; 

through consultation services to help plan institutes, seminars and conferences 
on the issues and the action involved in the internationalization of 
mission; 

127 



through orientation programs for people going overseas in the service of the 
church or of secular agencies, and week-end seminars for local chur- 
ches. 



Ministers in Industry Program 

Ministers in Industry has for many years been a consciousness-raising and ex- 
perience-expanding summer work-seminar program aimed at putting seminary 
students in touch with life in industry. During the summer of 1977, the eight-week 
program will deal with "The Work Ethic in Contemporary America." The 
program's main purpose will be to focus students' attention on the ethos created by 
U.S. technology and the American productive system. 

Students will be employed as wage earners in factories during the day, and will 
participate in a 3-hour seminar two evenings each week. The seminar portion of 
the program will deal with the political, social, ethnic, racial, and economic at- 
titudes of the blue collar worker; with on-the-job problems; with generational and 
cultural conflicts; with the effectiveness of the trade unions in democratizing the 
industrial process; and with each of these issues as it relates to theological 
questions. 

Students will be oriented to a series of issues which will facilitate understanding 
and analysis of their own participation in the work process and which will serve as 
bases for the several seminar sessions. Content of the seminar discussions will be 
provided by observations and reflections stemming from students' respective work 
situations and by preparatory readings in which the participants will engage. Each 
participant is expected to concentrate his or her attention on a given area of in- 
dustrial experience, as reflected in the major issues noted above, and to prepare a 
paper on this particular issue. 

The seminar sessions will be led by Prof. Poethig, who will provide an outline 
and content analysis of each issue; each student will speak to the issue which he or 
she has chosen, reflecting on what has been learned in the work experience and in 
the readings. Where needed, outside expertise will also be drawn in. 

Students should plan to begin their summer employment by June 6, 1977, or as 
soon thereafter as possible. The orientation session will be held during the week 
beginning June 6, and the final seminar will be held during the week ending August 
5. Students who desire may continue their jobs beyond the conclusion of the 
seminar. An optional debriefing session will be held September 6, and all papers 
will be due no later than August 31. Evaluation will be based upon seminar per- 
formance, the paper, and work performance (in consultation with the labor 
relations or personnel department of the factory in which the student has worked). 

Enrollment is open to students who have completed one year of study at any ac- 
credited theological seminary. While the program is offered for 4 quarter hours 
credit, additional academic and/or clinical credit may be negotiated. Tuition for 
the program is payable to McCormick Theological Seminary at its regular rate for 
the number of credit hours sought. Applications for admission may be obtained in 
the office of the dean or registrar at each Cluster school or from ICUIS, and should 
be submitted to ICUIS by May 1, 1977.

CHICAGO THEOLOGICAL INSTITUTE 

The Chicago Cluster of Theological Schools enjoys a cordial and fruitful 
working relationship with the Chicago Theological Institute (CTI), which is a con- 
sortium of five theological schools located in the northern metropolitan area of the 
city. The member institutions of CTI are Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary 
(United Methodist), North Park Theological Seminary (Evangelical Covenent), 
Seabury-Western Theological Seminary (Episcopal), Trinity Evangelical Divinity 
School (Evangelical Free), and St. Mary of the Lake Seminary (Roman Catholic), 
an associate member. Each of these five institutions embodies a unique theological 
tradition or denominational affiliation which complements and enriches those 
represented among the nine schools of the Cluster. 

By common agreement between the two consortia students other than those pur- 
suing academic doctorates in each member school enjoy tuition-free cross- 
registration privileges in all other member schools. Most Cluster students thus 
have broad functional access without additional fees to significant curricular 
resources in fourteen theological schools which collectively represent a richness 
and diversity of ecumenical perspectives and theological traditions unduplicated in 
any other local setting. 

The procedures for cross-registering into CTI schools are identical to those for 
cross-registering into Cluster schools. Information regarding CTI course descrip- 
tions and schedules is available in the office of the dean and registrar at each 
Cluster school. Such information may also be obtained from the office of the dean 
or registrar of the respective CTI schools :

CHICAGO AREA COLLEGES AND UNIVERSITIES 

In addition to certain informal cooperative agreements which the Chicago 
Cluster of Theological Schools and its member institutions enjoy with various 
colleges and universities in the metropolitan area, one or more Cluster schools en- 
joy formal relationships with various local institutions of higher education. 
Through such relationships students at the respective seminaries enjoy correspon- 

129 



dingly expanded and enriched educational offerings as well as a variety of 
significant benefits which may include participation in joint-degree programs; 
tuition reduction for course work; library privileges; and access to health services, 
cultural activities, and recreation facilities.
